Let us guide you in this private wine tour focused on Barolo and Barbaresco and taste different wines. Enjoy enchanting landscapes, local real people, tasty typical food and excellent wines by local small producers.  The Langhe region, Turin, The Savoy Palaces, the castles, the boroughs and the sanctuaries, the museums: Piedmont, a region to fulfill everybody’s expectations!

Turin: a unique city, capital of the Kingdom of Savoy for over 300 years and first capital of the country of Italy in 1861. That regal influence can be seen in the architecture, cuisine and culture, in the stylish piazzas and in the many regal estates of the Savoy family. It is constantly transforming and renewing its artistic and cultural heritage and its urban setting.

The Langhe: an area of Piedmont famous for the White Alba Truffle, with one of the most important gastronomic events in the world, and for its wines: the most renowned are Barolo and Barbaresco, but these are just two of the 17 DOCG wines made in Piedmont!

 

Tour Details

Piedmont is home to 17 DOCG wines out of a total of around one hundred in Italy. It is the Region with the highest number of DOCG (Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin) wines. Most of these wines are produced with different and indigenous grapes such as Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto – red grapes – or Cortese, Erbaluce di Caluso, Moscato – white grapes. Other grapes are not included in DOCG wine production but are very important and special anyway. Examples are Timorasso, Grignolino, Arneis, Freisa.

The most interesting areas to sample the wines of Piedmont are the Langhe, where they produce the famous Barolo and Barbaresco and where there are the largest number of producers. However, even Monferrato, Canavese and North Piedmont are areas that yield excellent wines, emerging wineries and itineraries that will amaze you with the beauty of the cellars and the vineyards. The vineyards of Monferrato, Langhe and Roero were included in 2014 on the UNESCO Heritage List.

Langhe are also famous for the White Alba Truffle, with one of the most important gastronomic events in the world. Not only wines and white truffles, but also DOP cheeses, still largely from small handicraft producers, the IGP Piedmontese hazelnut, grappa and more.

According to your needs we can accompany you in any winery of the region: from the most famous producers to those just emerging, from large historic cellars to the small ones, that produce natural and homemade wine. The choice is vast, indicate your preference or let yourself be guided by us.
